Questions about locing my hair,


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

Dry hair will lock up better, so I wouldn't use coconut oil. If you don't want your sections to be like a grid you should just neglect, your hair doesn't need tnr to lock up. Let your hair go wild and leave your it down and natural as often as possible. If you need gel sometimes I've heard aloe works well and doesn't leave horrible build up (which can attract dirt and feed mold, ewww). You dont need curl defining gel anymore :) Enjoy your journey!

Why not to wear hats when natural dreading - my year and a half journy and the effect the hat had.


Saved Dreads Success Stories

Man, took off a hat at age two and didnt put one on again for what 19 years (around 10 months neglect) and every day I wear one my roots dread by leaps and bounds. But I can see how nonstop hat wearing or lack of seperation could be a problem. And wearing it from the first day, I can see how it held you back. But hat, well "tam" wearing is awesome for me :)

Thin root, thicker dread. should I worry?


Help! Save My Dreads

Most likely you have shed hairs and they've tangled up and scrunched up and is now shorter as a result, am I right? Well, up at the roots its not as(or at all) tangled so it appears thinner. It you palm roll or twist a lot or you wear up tight that could be a problem too. Most likely though, because you use this site and everyone seems anti palm rolling, its the first one. I hope I helped :)

Tell me about your Dread Decorations?


Introduce Yourself

So Ive read these comments and I fell like I learned really good reasons to decorate. I put wraps in to keep wild dreads from getting to big but at this point i fell like my hair is changing to much to really add permanent things (like Zombiekitten said...) when they get older I might add things that I find or are given to me. I like that every knot was a moment of my life and trinkets that reflected that would make me happy. I suppose Im just not the kinda person how goes out and buys a dread bead cause its pretty Im more sentimental. No one has ever given me something for my dreads. :/ but If they did Id probably wear it forever :)

Tell me about your Dread Decorations?


Introduce Yourself

I've put beads, yarn, and lost things in my hair but they never stay long. I think they look so cool on other people. I think they look fine on me. I just dont see meaning in anything Ive found. Do you have things in your dreads? If so post a picture and tell me why you have them, how long have you had them.

How to start with VERY long Hair


Dreading Methods

My hair was super long when i started neglect dreads just 3 months ago. Just know it will shrink a lot! You can look at my pictures and see if that helps.

Baking soda toothpaste


General Questions

I use it sometimes. You get used to the taste but its never good. It cleans so well but avoid your gums, it makes mine sore.

Frustration!


Help! Save My Dreads

It looks to me like your hair is shorter in the back. Just give it a few months to grow and dont touch it. You might just like how the knots will form over time. If you dont like how it goes you can just brush it out when it gets a long enough to hold the knots that you plan to form.

Dread Maintenance

Beautifully said. This is the kind of thing I think about before I fall asleep.
